The Vineyard

Pyangle Estate is a 6 ha (15 acre) vineyard situated 475m above sea level at "Pyangle" Lue( pronounced Lou-ee) between Mudgee and Rylstone NSW. The vineyard lies at the base of the imposing Elephant Mountain-hence the name of our Shiraz.  It is the only vineyard in this area.

The unique terroir and cool climate which involves a very long ripening period with cold nights and warm sunny days enhance the flavours of our wine.
 

The Grapes

The Shiraz grapevines were planted in 1999 and 2005. Over the years the premium grade grapes have been sold to Orlando Wyndam Estate and Robert Oatley Wines. Since 2009 we have harvested our grapes to contract make our own wine under the Elephant Mountain Label.


Vineyard and Winemaking Management

We prune the vines each year to achieve low yielding vines to optimise the flavours in the grapes during ripening before harvest. Minimal sprays are used in the vineyard and wherever possible none at all. The grapes are handpicked at their optimal ripeness to achieve a balanced and digestible wine requiring minimal additives in the winemaking process. Our wine is especially sought after by those who are sensitive to chemicals and preservatives.
